Tomorrow is my appointment with the fracture clinic. I’m pretty nervous as I don’t have any idea what is going to happen.
First, I have no clue as to whether or not I’m gonna need to get a cast on. Of the people I’ve told, some people say that perhaps they’ll put a tensor bandage on my ankle, while others say that’s impossible as a tensor bandage won’t keep my ankle stable enough for the ankle to heal. Others say that it can’t possibly be that bad as i’ve potentially been walking around on this fractured ankle for months.
The point of the matter is, even though I’ve been walking around on it for months or however long its been…my ankle is still fractured. The only reason I know this is because of the MRI, and that happened just a few days ago. I guess what I’m trying to say is that it is months later and my ankle still shows up as being fractured, and I’m guessing they’re not just going to “leave it the way it is”. It would be a huge downer to have to wear the cast on my vacation!!
On the flip side, as I mentioned, I’m happy to know my ankle is fractured. Now we can work on fixing it and healing! One of the benefits of going on home dialysis was the ability to d/c many of the medications I was taking, one of them being calcium. Now what am I to do, a woman with osteoporosis, not taking calcium because I’m on home hemo? How will they solve this problem? Anyhow, I do look forward to getting this appointment done and over with so that I know how to continue, as in, getting back into my physiotherapy, massage, acupuncture…and waiting on Dad to buy me my exercise bike so that I can build up those bones!
Tomorrow is definitely going to be an interesting appointment…
